Postdoctoral position in Computer Vision in INRIA-ENS Willow project (Paris, France)

Title: Unexpected object detection in car drivers visual field
Lab: Willow Project (INRIA-ENS)
Location: Paris, France
Contact: Jean-Yves Audibert and Jean Ponce

Description:

A major thrust in WILLOW is automatic scene understanding. This post-doc position fits within this 
thrust, and will build on unexpected object detection algorithms in the framework of a vehicle 
moving several times on the same route. The core problems involved by this task are image matching 
handling high variations in the video capturing conditions and scene understanding (objects 
identification, position and movement). Several parts of computer vision and machine learning are 
thus involved: optical flow estimation, image processing, feature extraction and matching in low 
dimensional images, hypothesis testing, statistical learning,...
The post-doc will be funded by the French Defence Ministry. It is part of a joint project with 
EVITECH aiming at human life protection in possibly dangerous routes.

Application:

Candidates are invited to contact Jean-Yves Audibert and Jean Ponce for details before December 
15th, 2007. Knowledge in computer vision, machine learning and programming will be much appreciated.


Best regards,
Jean-Yves Audibert and Jean Ponce
